Syngenta Launches 16 Pound Pails of Weatherblok XT Rodent Bait

The change in packaging is in response to the rodenticide risk mitigation (RMD) passed by the U.S. EPA on May 28, 2008.

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Syngenta has unveiled new 16 pound pails of Weatherblok XT rodenticide bait. While the packaging has changed, the bait continues to offers PMPs the benefits of outstanding palatability, weatherability and effectiveness against warfarin-resistant mice and rats. The new pack size will offer pest management companies the same price per pound of bait as the traditional 11 pound pails.

The change in packaging is in response to the rodenticide risk mitigation (RMD) passed by the U.S. EPA on May 28, 2008. The RMD requires that all second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) containing the active ingredients brodifacoum, bromadiolone, difethialone or difenacoum be sold in unit quantities of at least 16 pounds by June 2011. PMPs may continue using the 11 pound pails of Weatherblok XT until they are phased out through typical distribution channels.

“While the U.S. EPA ruling doesn’t require manufacturers to comply until June 2011, Syngenta is manufacturing ahead of schedule to help PMPs transition to the new 16 pound pails,” said Pat Willenbrock, brand manager, Syngenta. “The new pail size allows PMPs to continue using the unique formulation of Weatherblok XT for superior resistance to the elements, even in damp places such as sewers and drains.”

Weatherblok XT contains the single feeding anticoagulant, brodifacoum, and features a unique shape and gnawing edges. The bait includes Bitrex, the human taste deterrent, and should always be applied out of reach of children, domestic animals and non-target wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations, such as the Syngenta Multiplex Station.
